Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November. It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that many people continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.
The following are some simple and helpful techniques that we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:
· When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights
· Close window curtains and blinds at night
· Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons
· If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows
